shlub

slang A dull, dowdy, or untalented person; someone who is generally unattractive or unremarkable. From Yiddish. I'll never understand why such a knockout beauty as she is with a shlub like him. The tribute band, as it were, was just a bunch of shlubs in cheap costumes and makeup playing KISS's greatest hits—and playing them badly, at that.
